Success Story

Little Conemaugh River
Acidity, erosion and sediment deposits had compromised water quality and the abundance of brook trout and other aquatic life in Little Conemaugh River. To encourage the recovery of brook trout populations and other aquatic life, the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture, along with the help of more than a dozen partners, is using limestone to neutralize the river’s acidity and stabilize the eroded areas.
